Grass - Porcupine

This Porcupine Stands Out


The Grass 'Porcupine', Miscanthus sinensis 'Strictus', has green leaves with cream colored horizontal bands. These leaves make this ornamental grass stand out anywhere!


Silvery white plumes rise 4 feet above the foliage in fall. The 'Porcupine' tolerates a wide range of soil types and is moderately drought tolerant. It will hold up to wind and snow.


This grass has a rigid, upright habit and stiff, pointed leaf blades, some of which stick out at angles like porcupine quills.


Use this plant as a specimen, for mass plantings, or plant next to ponds or pools.


Water this grass regularly, mainly during the season when they are blooming, as you need to have well developed roots so that the grass can absorb enough nutrition from the soil.


When clumps dry in the fall they add structural interest to the winter garden.


In early spring remove the dead foliage before the plants begins new growth. Clumps may be divided every 3 years or so in early spring.


It is deer resistant and has very has very little pest and disease issues.


Tall, tough, and showy!


*4' White Plumes in Autumn


*Green and Cream Banded Leaves


*Upright and Rigid Foliage
